This was my first Lomo meet up. I liked taking part and it was good running around on the Southbank taking pictures. We had to meet up at the Hayward Gallery Concrete Café and when I arrived I was surprised at how many people were there already, waiting to try out their cameras. I wanted to use a white Colorsplash.
When we decided to go along the Thames walk, we went to The National Theatre with all the books in one place under the bridge. I was looking forward to going on the beach but the tide was in, so it’s worth checking the timetables if you want to do this. So we went into Gabriels Wharf a market where there were some brilliant carved wooden chairs and animals that you could sit on.
Walking past all the shops at the OXO Tower, we then bought some toffee nuts and stopped to keep warm and eat them.This area was closed in and there were lots of people trying to get past. The Tate Modern was a bit further on and I was getting tired from all the walking and cold so we went in to look at the exhibition, it was really good, another spider and lots of books and beds!
The Millennium ‘wobbly’ bridge was good fun for posing on and my mum another lomographer took some pinholes of me. I took some of St. Paul’s Cathedral, I’m glad I didn’t have to walk to it! then we walked back to meet up again and return the camera. I had a great time running around with some other children when I got there.

On a sunny April Sunday, I decided to load a Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 on my new Lomo LC-A+; both bought few weeks ago from the Lomography Online Shop to take some photos of some Italian food stalls in the center of my city, Como. Here my first impressions about this interesting film.
When I held the Lomo LC-A 120 in my hands for the first time, I immediately noticed its good feel and beautiful design. The LC-A 120 obviously, is truly, related to the queen of all Lomo cameras, the LC-A.

Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
